No Justine, we don't need a second referendum

It comes after former education secretary Justine Greening, a long-time Remainer, joined in the calls for another referendum.

Official data released Monday showed that the number of European Union immigrants coming to Britain fell to a five-year low last year, as fewer people arrived without a firm job offer during the first full calendar year since June 2016's Brexit vote.

May's dismissal of the idea was prompted by a Conservative, Justine Greening, who wrote in the Times of London that the "only solution is to take the final Brexit decision out of the hands of deadlocked politicians" with a second vote, which would give citizens three options: sticking with May's vision of a "Soft Brexit", remain in the European Union after all, or leave the bloc with no deal.

The size of the threat to her position should become clear on Monday when eurosceptic lawmakers put forward a series of proposals to toughen up the government's customs legislation during a parliamentary debate.

However, the danger to the Prime Minister was underlined by the disclosure that Brexiteers had set up a Whatsapp group to co-ordinate voting tactics, organised by ex-Brexit minister Steve Baker, who quit over the Chequers plan.

"There is not going to be a second referendum under any circumstances".

A spokesperson for Theresa May reiterated the leader's belief that her plan for leaving the European Union was the only way to get a deal that meets the government's needs.

Sir Bernard told the programme that the Chequers plan was "dead", with opposition from both wings of the Tory party.

"All of that hinges on that being agreed this autumn and, I think, when it comes to Parliament, I hope and expect that it will be persuasive that what is on offer will be good for the United Kingdom and good for every part of the United Kingdom".

He added: "I can not tell the people of WOxon [West Oxfordshire] that I support the proposals in their current form". The final decision should be given back to the people and out of "deadlocked politicians" hands, Ms Greening said .

The level of support they attract will draw intense focus, particularly if the number significantly exceeds the 48 required to call for a vote of no confidence in May's leadership of the Conservative party.

But, fuelled by criticism from U.S. President Donald Trump and anger among grassroots party members, the sentiment against May has gained fresh momentum.

"So all the second choices will be the Chequers deal".

In his resignation letter, Mann said he feared that some of May's proposals would put him "in direct conflict with the views expressed by a large section of my constituents".

Davis said he would not speak in the parliamentary debate but could back one of the rebel amendments.

Jacob Rees-Mogg, the chairman of the ERG, told the BBC "we'll have an idea of the numbers at 10pm on Monday evening" while one ERG insider added that they were "intensely relaxed" about the number of rebels they had signed up.

The skirmishes are expected to continue Tuesday when a trade bill is debated.

"The reality is parliament is now stalemated".
